Fluoride a cumulative poison

Dear Editor:

Fluoride is one of the most toxic substances on earth, on par with arsenic and lead. It has no proven biological use inside the human body (teeth included). There is no minimum daily requirement for fluoride, and it is a cumulative poison. Only about half of what we consume is excreted. The other half collects in the teeth and bones, making them dense but brittle.

Those little white spots visible on the teeth on some American children are called dental fluorosis, a condition which not only predisposes them to decay, but also provides a sign that systemic fluoride poisoning is taking place. Dental fluorosis appears to serve as a red flag for future bone fractures as well. It is interesting that European countries that have banned fluoridation (13 of them) appear to have lower rates of hyperactivity among their children.
